Today's Opinions

  • LCHS principal deserves recognition

    Today, Paul Mullins, principal of LaRue County High School, will be honored by his peers – the Kentucky Association of School Administrators – the largest school administrators group in Kentucky.

    He has been named Administrator of the Year, an award that “recognizes dynamic leaders who embody the zeal for leadership in education that KASA represents,” according to a KASA release.

  • Intern reflects on 10 weeks in LaRue

    There is a common myth that small towns are sleepy and boring; that they see little action and virtually no scandal. To those who succumb to this myth, I say look again " and this time, try to see things from the perspective of a reporter.

  • Soccer league appreciates use of fields

    The LaRue County Youth Soccer Association would like to thank First Baptist Church and the Methodist Church for letting LCYSA use their grounds during the spring soccer season.

  • It's time to bust farm subsidies

    President Franklin D. Roosevelt introduced government farm subsidies in the 1930s. At the time, Secretary of Agriculture Henry Wallace called them “a temporary solution to deal with an emergency.”

    That emergency – plummeting farm-household incomes and massive farm failures – impacted 25 percent of the U.S. population.

  • Do we suffer from empathy fatigue?

    We are bombarded by reports, in person and in the media, about hard things happening to people. Sometimes the hard events come to individuals and at other times to groups of us.

  • Company offers additional information about gas purchases

    We would like to offer additional information about the gas pricing story from last week. Several people have asked about the city purchasing gas from a convenient store rather than Bault Oil.

    The City of Hodgenville does not have a contract with Bault Oil Company. A contract has never existed with the city for fuel or oil purchases.

  • Minister's move takes him back home

    Several years ago, James Dobson published a book titled “When God Doesn’t Make Sense” and we all can quote the phrase “God works in mysterious ways.” It feels like that both of those fit perfectly well for my family right now. You see, after eight years of serving as pastor at South Fork Baptist Church, God has changed our assignment and my family and I will be moving in about a week to First Baptist Church, East Bernstadt. For us it is a return home but it is not a move without sadness.

  • We write the chapters in our own lives

    It is a typical scene in our office.

    A person – generally irate – although sometimes simply confused – walks through the door, picks up a paper from the stand and slaps it on the counter.

    Wait – I take that back. Sometimes they are angry and confused.

    Sometimes they shake the paper.

    Other times, they turn a few pages and jab a finger at an article.

    “Who wrote this?” they demand.

    Sometimes they add a few choice words.
